Re: Reinstalling after Key Activation
With the full version of Vista, you can activate the OS an unlimited number
of times and move the OS to a new computer/hard drive an unlimited number of
times (as long as it's removed from the previous computer/hard drive).
If it will not activate by choosing the Internet activation option, then use
the Telephone option.
